Disappear Here

Album Reviews
It is said that the real proof of greatness is to continuously evolve with each piece of work. After a relatively safe effort by his standards with 2001's 'Lake Desert', 'Disappear Here' sees a development - which not so much conveys genre-hopping - more a deviation from a well-mined formula. The result is perhaps even more minimalist than before with piano figuring very highly and clearly in production; no surprise then that a piece named 'Piano Song' begins and ends proceedings. Influences now cover Satie - or to take a modern comparison, Labradford - rather than the Cocteau Twins. For devotees of Jon Attwood's work the track 'The Sinking Sun' from the '-Split-' collaboration with Portal is an indicator of where the music is placed. 'Cycle' and 'Brittle' are the best examples of the new approach; both being as effortlessly moving as they are sinister. Amongst other fine tracks the edgy soundscapes of 'Interstate' mix enticingly with the morbid cascade of piano keys on 'Loop (Part Two)'. To summarise, 'Disappear Here' is a fine return for Yellow6 with enough depth to bear repeated listens.
